It seems like smail is set up OK, but fetchmail is not.  You don't
actually have a user on your local machine named pcr387, do you?  You need
to tell fetchmail to deliver mail to your username, 'david'.  So your
fetchmail stuff should look something like:

poll hecky.acns.nwu.edu
proto POP3
user pcr387
pass [secret]
is david here

Note the 'is david here' line.  That's what tells fetchmail where to
who gets the mail on the local machine.  Give that a try and see if the
error goes away.
